The mother of missing Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway sneaked into a Peruvian jail and confronted the man who is the prime suspect in her daughter’s disappearance. The last time Beth Holloway came face-to-face with Joran Van Der Sloot was the night after her daughter disappeared.
Joran Van Der Sloot has been behind bars for three-and-a-half months now, locked inside Peru’s notorious Castro Castro Prison charged with the brutal murder of a 21-year-old Peruvian woman, Stephany Flores.
According to Peruvian news agencies, Thursday Beth Holloway came face-to-face with Van Der Sloot, the young man who has long been the prime suspect in her daughter’s disappearance on the island of Aruba five-and-a-half years ago.
Apparently, Holloway snuck into the prison without being identified and carrying a hidden camera, aided by a Dutch TV reporter doing a special on Natalee.
Holloway, who spent about five minutes with Van Der Sloot, allegedly began the meeting by telling him that she had “no hate in her soul” for him.
Van Der Sloot is said to have responded by handing Holloway his attorney’s business card and saying he couldn’t speak without his lawyer present.
The website Radar Online went further, claiming that Holloway asked direct questions about Natalee’s disappearance but that Van Der Sloot refused to answer.
John Q. Kelly, Holloway’s attorney, confirmed only that Holloway is in Peru saying, “She’s a mother without a daughter. She wants to bring her daughter home.
A prison spokesman says there’s no record of Holloway’s mother in the visitor registry. An attorney for Holloway says she entered the jail with a Dutch television news crew.
